I am really struggling with this and I am not sure why. I simpy want to place a camera or create a view of a 3d drawing and plot a 2d elevation. I want to be able to clip the view to only show that object.
Example: 3d duct drawing, duct risers, I want to pick on riser and arnage it on a viewport. I can get a camera placed but each time it defaults to a perspective view and when I change it to non-perspective the camera disapears.
So I setup a view but no matter what i do I cannot get the clipping to work correctly.
Can someone direct me to a tutorial on createing 2d views of 3d drawings.
I don't want to use sectionplan or a live section the duct program I am using doesn't create actual cad style solids so that won't work.
I really can't beleive I cannot just select two points to determine the view direction and the apply it to the viewport. I have to be missing something.
Try the attached lisp.
When you run it It'll ask you for your target location... then where are you looking from?
Then it'll ask you how much you want to clip each view. So Front Clip of 500 and back clip of 1000 means you only see 500 before and 1000 behind the point you picked for target location.
Basically it's the DVIEW command simplified.
